Tool: Stove
Servings: 12 pancakes (give or take)
Calories: 162kcal
Ingredients
Dry ingredients:
  • 2 1/2 cup(s) all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoon(s) white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon(s) baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon(s) baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
Wet ingredients:
  • 2 cup(s) plant-based milk (such as soy or almond)
  • 2 tablespoon(s) lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup(s) vegan butter melted (plus more for frying)
  • 1/4 cup(s) aquafaba (the liquid in a can of chickpeas)
Instructions
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a medium bowl or measuring cup mix together the plant-based milk and lemon juice so that it curdles. Whisk in the melted vegan butter. Pour the milk mixture into the dry mixture and gently fold. Now add the aquafaba¬†and continue to fold. Don't overmix the batter, it should be very lumpy. Let the batter rest for 15 to 30 minutes. Side note: I found this resting time didn't make much of a difference, so skip if you prefer.
  • When ready to cook pancakes, use a large cast iron skillet or non-stick pan. Melt a dab of vegan butter in the pan and then pour in a heaping 1/3 cup of pancake batter. For extra thick pancakes, do not spread the batter. Cook a few minutes until the bottom is browned and bubbles appear on the top of the pancake. Flip and cook 1 to 2 minutes more on the other side. Repeat with the remaining batter.
Notes
Soy-Free: To keep this recipe soy-free, choose almond or oat milk rather than soy milk.
